Sephora brings together seven of its popular Flashy Liner Eye Pencils in a brand new gift set for $20 ($18 if you’re indulging now with the Friends and Family Event giving you 20% off).
Considering my track record with Sephora Cosmetics this was a hit or miss purchase. I had heard last year from many readers how much they enjoyed the Sephora Flashy Liners but I wasn’t completely sold however offer me 7 of ‘em for a decent price and you tempt me easily.
You have it on my authority that Bobbi loves herself some Navajo. Girl slaps that shadow in every single eye palette she introduces.
By now, I got all kinds of a headache from an overdose of Navajo. Every single Bobbi Brown Palette I own has Navajo in it so just like trouble, I don’t go out of my way looking for Navajo, it seems to find me.
At first Navajo was a bit of a novelty. It was a good all over color base and even it’s matte formula wasn’t too, too bad speaking as a self proclaimed shimmer-a-holic here. But than Navajo was rehashed too much and I noticed I was being force fed Navajo when I didn’t ask for a second helping.
In the end I started to hate Navajo.
Until I realized Bobbi Brown made Navajo in a cream eyeshadow.
I wish I had a will and a way to admit to myself that I already have PLENTY of lipgloss to get through and I really don’t need more. But sadly, it never works out. I convinced myself recently I would not indulge in the Bath and Body Works Liplicious Cupcakes Lipgloss.
Yes, they were cute. Yes, they looked tasty. Yes, they weren’t too badly priced.
But no…NO!…no! I did not need them. Hell, even I’m honest with myself I’ll go so far as to say I haven’t even gotten half way through a single tube of last year’s Liplicious Glosses so why in the world do I need more?
Sometimes there’s simply no rhyme or reason to a makeup junkie’s life, you just have to roll with it.
I’m kicking myself today for not picking up ALL the shades of Hard Candy Hide & Glow Cheek. You see, I only make a pilgrimage to the evil empire (Walmart) a few times a year and in most cases its because 1. my sister drags me in (her being the Queen of old Wally World and all) or 2. I need to get my Hard Candy fix.
During my recent foray I ended up hauling one of the three shades of Hard Candy Hide & Glow because I was a little meh and worried it wouldn’t be so fabulous but now that I completely love it, I’m left to kick myself around because I really hate the idea of heading back to the evil empire to get the other two shades.
Sod’s law, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong in the case of great makeup.
I’ve been stalking every drugstore in New York trying to get my hands on two of the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Holiday Palettes I don’t already own. It’s becoming borderline obsessive.
I haven’t been this hyped about makeup since Givenchy released its Diamond Powder!
